Providing a Tailwind - Hanover Park Girls Matter

Personal message

Girls Matter provides support, guidance, and training to teenage girls in Hanover Park, who have dropped out of school.

Kate and I run the project in our own time. We also provide a peer group, affirmation, healthy food and fun relaxation strategies (laughter yoga, yoga, body scan, etc). Our aim is to enable these vulnerable girls to regain their balance enough to return to school, start training or find employment and in so doing keep them out of gangs, where they are usually exploited and abused.

We need funds for a number of costs; eg. a 16-year-old wants to return to school but has no support nor money to ensure adequate care for her baby (R500/month). We want to send the girls on recognised first aid training so they can find work in creches, etc. We are also negotiating a doula training so some of the group can act as birth companions at Hanover Park MOU for other unsupported teenage mothers. Early childhood development and computer skills training are also possible if we raise sufficient funds. 

*Small Projects Foundation advise and endorse on this project. Donations of over R5 000, which require a SARS 18A certificate should be made via the Small Projects Foundation site
